The Asteroid Belt!
There is a dwarf planet called Ceres, but no planets.
There is an average of 3.7 AU (340 million mi or 550 million km) of distance between the planets Mars and Jupiter, so there could be many things, including asteroids and comets at some point during their orbit. However, the main thing between Mars and Jupiter is the asteroid belt.
